“There is a growing understanding that protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults is at the core of our faith. Safeguarding is about creating churches that are a safe space for everyone; a space where children can flourish and adults can live up to their potential. It is about enabling everyone to come to Jesus without stumbling blocks of abuse, ignorance, fear, compassion, fatigue or the failure to recognise the experiences that so many carry within our communities.”
Elizabeth Hall, Safeguarding Advisor, Methodist Church in Britain
We take safeguarding children and vulnerable adults very seriously within our circuit and churches. Many workers within are circuit have completed the Methodist Church Foundation Training which aid their delivery of safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. We adhere to the Methodist Church for Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults handbook.
